It seems that with nomodeset Xorg.0.log could not be saved.
Perhaps system got frozen before system could write anything
to Xorg.0.log.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2009-09-18 01:36:45 UTC
If it works without mode setting, then it's actually fine; I should have made it clearer that the nomodeset test is only really there as a fallback if booting with modesetting doesn't work. so, if it worked OK with modesetting, we'll close this bug as WONTFIX. could you let us know? thanks!
